Patient safety is a priority, the chief executive of the James Paget University Hospitals trust said today, after a hospital worker was arrested on suspicion of murder by detectives investigating the death of a patient. Christine Allen added:
Our thoughts are with the family of this patient at what is a very difficult time.
Our priority is patient safety and we understand that this news will cause concern.
At this time, we believe it is an isolated incident and relates to the alleged action of a single member of staff.
Throughout this difficult period, the James Paget University Hospital will continue to provide the best possible care to our patients and we are fully co-operating with the police.
